brush tutorial by calisto-lynn brush tutorial by calisto-lynn
this is supposed to be a part of my nature-painting tutorial, but it is also a promise :iconnebezial: made to many people here on dA, so as his wife i made the tutorial since he had a ton of work to do so he couldnt make it.

many people we met didnt know they could make a custom brush, so here is a simple explanation on how to make one and modify it to your own needs. hope you enjoy it :)

I have a question. I can't seem to make my brushes not overlap. I mostly want to paint a solid image, but it has this semi-opaque quality I can't seem to get rid of. If you use the brush over the same area it loses the detail and becomes a solid color. Is there anyway to fix this?

you can toy with spacing between the brush, if that is what you actually want.  but im not sure what you mean. could you show me an example of what you wanted, that way i think i could help you better :)

I'm mostly looking for what Nebezial (your husband I believe!!! :P) Does here.
Does he select a layer style or something?

yes. 
drop shadow and bevel and emboss.
you can see those advanced options when you double click on the layer.

Oh and tell your husband that I had to have my mom keep my debit card hostage because I keep buying books with his art in them! XD Seriously in the last month I've bought like 10 books because they had his art either as a cover or in the pages :D

That's so cool! Thanks for the tutorial. But I was wondering....wouldn't it be the same if I drew normally then inverted the image after I'm done? It would seem like saving me alot of trouble....:|
